Hello all, I hope you are all well on this blustery day!
What a very busy week I’ve had! A few weeks ago a lovely lady from the W.I. asked me if I would teach – I know … me … teach – crochet to some W.I. members whilst they were on a residential. Of course I couldn’t say no (even though the thought struck , well if not terror at least mild discomfort, into my brain!) so Saturday afternoon found me trundling along with a bag of goodies to see them all.
I had decided that the snowflakes from the lovely Lucy would be a good thing for us to make as chains and double crochets were covered. I gave them all one of my little handmade snowflakes to take away with them attached to my blog address so they could check in with me to see their makes.
Thanks must go to all the lovely ladies for putting up with my (at times) dodgy directions – more practice on the teaching front is definitely required. They all made me feel completely at home and I loved my afternoon. I was very honoured to be asked and teaching is definitely a lot harder than it looks! Here is what they all made during an hour and a half:
Beautiful, brightly coloured and wonderful snowflakes. YUM!
Inspired by everyone’s yarn choices a visit to my local wool shop came next – and I got there just in time too … how lucky!
Rows upon rows of gorgeous yarny colour – oh how I wish I could dive right into it all (especially the glorious clash of reds and pinks!) but I restrained myself as I didn’t want to be banned from never ever again darkening their door!
Next comes the rather strange and odd tah-dah that resulted from hooking up a rainbow. Noone guessed what it might have been so here we are …
I think ‘yarn-storming’ or ‘yarn-bombing’ is what it is officially called – I call it badgering a neighbour until they give in to me and my slightly bonkers ideas and say ‘yes’ to me decorating a dead tree in their garden with yarn! I think that my lovely lady neighbour gets it, not sure if ‘husband’ has seen it in daylight yet!
Many people may call me odd – believe me it is nothing new – but I love it! (shame it isn’t in my garden really but there we go!) Strange, yes, but who can resist a rainbow?!
On that weird and wonderful note I will leave you and do the thing I’m meant to be doing!
Until next time, keep it weird and wacky!
(oh and the W.I. rock!)
